Over sixty per cent of us have spider veins on our feet which can spoil the look of a strappy sandal.

Action: Cover with a fake tan or try a good Corrective Foundation like Dermablend £16, from most chemist. For an effective and more permanent solution IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is the best treatment. During treatment, they are zapped by an intense pulsed light and the veins collapse and are then absorbed by the body. You may need three to six treatments to completely remove them but do not have IPL five weeks before or after a sun holiday as the light targets the pigment in the veins and you could   risk getting hyperpigmentation. Always wear a minimum SPF 30 after treatment.  Costs vary but expect to pay from around £100 per area.
